  • @mikecardus I think u have a point, Mike. I tend to agree with u. maybe i will get back to Socrates and Aristotle again. But one thing is for sure. Healthy criticism must be encouraged, and the three tests of Socrates, in a broader sense, do address that. All the same being goody goody all the time does not work. I read a thought provoking article on '9 ways to say NO' and thats also essential. I think at the end of it the 'intention' must be for the good

  • The slideshare is interesting and I am more an Aristotle man than a Socrates and Plato's Socrates fan.
    Socrates was well known for his admitting he did not know anything, and this 'test of 3' was just in his nature of being a 'gadfly' and through his method disarming anyone that claimed to have knowledge.
    Also I don't agree with the THINK parts of inspiring, necessary and kind - while those are virtues...sometimes a response, or blog post, or update may not be kind and many are not necessary. If we truly attempt to follow the dictum's you offer, then most of social media would not not exist. Ludwig Wittgenstein said 'We want to walk: so we need friction. Back to the rough ground!' friction and disagreement create intellectual rigor and growth. This 'friction' is generally not THINK. It is meant to illustrate disagreement and engage in discourse over differing opinions. This is what creates forward movement, and innovation.

  • Thnx Yogesh for d share.I had heard about Socrates dialogue with his student but the way it has been connected by you with Social Media is certainly quiet innovative way and certainly manages to unravel the mystery of getting better response on social media.Cheers!!
